Bruegger's Bakery and Cafe Franchise Information:


We are actively seeking franchisees who have the drive to succeed in a nationally-recognized concept that places strong emphasis on the success of its franchisees.

Bruegger's has offered franchising opportunities since 1993. We are well positioned to take advantage of the national trend toward quick casual restaurants. Our bakery-cafés offer upscale customers a variety of freshly baked bagels and proprietary cream cheeses - and a whole lot more, like soups, made-to-order salads, custom-blended coffees, deli-style sandwiches, and scrumptious desserts.

Our products are made with all-natural ingredients, and we take pride in providing excellent customer service. We offer a warm, inviting atmosphere for our customers in our newly designed bakery-cafés. Bruegger's franchisees are hard working, results-oriented people who appreciate the benefits of a proven system. They care about customers and enjoy providing healthy, nutritious food at a good value. Our most successful franchisees are involved in managing the day-to-day operations of their bakery-cafés.
